The JANOME AirThread 2000D Professional unites ease-of-use with the specialised function of an advanced overlocker. It’s our easiest to thread overlocker ever! Just push the lever and the air will blow the threads through the loopers. There’s no need to fear overlockers anymore. With the new Janome AirThread overlocker everything is easy!
The new thread delivery system with lever ratchet mechanism makes stable air threading. Simply insert the thread into the looper threading hole, follow the easy steps and the air will blow the thread through the looper in this one push blast air threading system.
Built-in needle threader
It’s easy to thread the needles and will save you time too. By simply sliding the needle threader switch lever to R for threading the right needle or L for the left needle you’ll be ready to go in no time.
No need to open the side cover the dials are all in one place! Easily adjust the cutting width to ensure stitches sit correctly on the edge of the fabric, even on curves whether the fabric is bulky or fine. The upper knife can be easily deactivated for decorative flatlock and pintucking etc.
The cleverly integrated stitch length and differential feed dials can be easily adjusted to the perfect setting for your fabric whether sewing stretch or lightweight fabrics. Experiment to create gathers or decorative lettuce leaf edgings.
Adjustable foot pressure dial
Simply dial ‘N’ for normal sewing. There are five-levels of presser foot adjustment to help feed heavy and lightweight fabric s.
Lower looper pre-tension setting
It’s easy to adjust the lower looper tension with this conveniently placed slider. When operated with the easily accessible chaining finger switch you can change from standard to rolled hemming in no time. There’s no need to open the looper cover!
Looper selection lever
Simply position your thread and direct the looper se lection lever to the looper you wish to thread: to the right for ‘threading’ the lower looper and to the left for threading the upper looper.
New Standard foot
The new standard foot has a smooth flat finish to the base with purpose-built indentations. This will help support sewing on thick fabrics and multiple layers, as well as uneven surfaces, and help prevent needle damage or skipped stitches. Together with the 8 piece feed dog you can achieve amazing results, even on the lightest weight fabrics.
Keep your work flat to achieve the best finish. The large flat work area on this machine is perfect for larger projects and the large waste chip box will collect all of the loose threads to help keep your workspace tidy.
This is a reliable and robust overlocker. The main shaft is equipped with two ball bearings which provide low torque, making it powerful and stable running even at high speeds.
